Iiut tho llnnl result can only bo delnyed by such drtvlceP. and Hfo and proi orty will bo madosccuro thcroaaclsowhoro. Tho scene of tho riots Is In tho narrow, northern portion of tho Ktnto, south of Clarke's I'ork of tho Columbia, nnd west of tho Illttor Hoot Mountains. Vnllace and Waidnor arc two neighboring towns, a little south of Cieur d'Aleno. on tlm branch ralliond that runs duo east from Tekoa In Washington to Mullnn In Idaho. Fort Sher man Is nt Cunird'Alano, on a branch of tho Northern l'aclllc. and garrisoned by Tioop O, rourth Cavalry, with four compnnlcs, A, D. V, and II, 1'ouith Infantry. Kastward, across tho mountain range, and between tho liltter ltoot chnlu and tho Divide of tho Kocky Mountains, Is l'ort Missoula, also on tho Northern Pacific Thoro nro thrno companies, F. G, and II, of tho Twenty-fifth Infantry, a colored regiment. In thoStateof AVashlngton Is Fort Spoknno, 2"i miles distant from Davenport on tho North l'aclllc. whoro nro four moro com panies, U, V G, and I. of Col. CAniiis's regi ment, the Fourth Infantry, I being nn In dian company. At Vancouver, six miles from Portland, whero they can proceed by mil, aro Tioop H, Fourth Cavalry, and six companies. 11, C. D, E.F.and G.of Col. Ax ni;r.sox'rt regiment, tho Fourteonth In fantry. All tho foregoing troops, or as many of them as can bo spaied from garrison duty, are Immediately avallablo. Then, at Ilolse Earracks, on a nUlroad line, nro Troops F, Fourth Cavalry, and C. Fouith Infantry. At Fort Walla V.'alln, on tho Noi thorn l'a clllc, aro Tioops A, D. II, nnd L. Fourth Cavalry. Hut since railroad communica tion U all that is necessary for rapidly con centrating troops hundreds of miles away, all the garrisons in Montana on tho lines of Milk lllvor and tho Yellowstono could respond ipilekly to n call for rein forcements. There, too, are somo of tho strongest gauisons. Fort Asslnlbolno has two troops of tho Tenth Cavalry nnd bv n companies of tho Twentloth Infantry, while Fort Keogli. on tho Northern Paclllc, has two tioops of cavalry and j-ight compa nies of the Twenty-second Infantry. Cus ter and other forts would also not ba long in responding. It mubt, therefcro, bo evident that any attempt to opposo tho troops summoned to the mining region would bo followed by the prompt concentration of an overwhelming force from tho garrisons of Washington. Oregon, Wyoming, Montana, tho IJakotas, nnd Nebraska. Tho rioters understand this, and It is said that quiet is already restored. This country of ours Is a land of liberty protected bylaw: and when, iu tl.o puisult of their own onds, or to redress alleged grievances, bodies of men defy tho law, burn and blow up property, kill Itj eubtodiaas. and endeavor to btibstltuto anarchy for orderly government, thoy will soon be checked by tho organized military forces of tho peoplo. Should Irish Nationalists Kilter a Brit ish Ministry? Tho certainty that the McCaithyltes will form an Indispensable part of Mr. GfcAD .vroNn's majority In natuially causing tome discussion ns l the conditions upon which the two pni lies will coopeinte. It will bo rcniemlo'od that iu the last Parliament tho dissident l.ilici.ilij refialned from fusing with tho Coiifcoivittivcs, that they main tulued a party organization of their own. and that mine of their leaders, except Mr. (ioscnr.N, consented Ui te.Uo oflleo under Loid SAM.siii'iir. Will the McCaithyltes imitate tho semi-independent stand of tho dln!dci.l I.iboiul&.orwitl tlteyoonlcbce with the C!in'stoilniiB and put forth claims to one or mine wats in the Llbeinl Cabinet ' Thomsswi'i glcu to tliii. quebtlon is likely to haui an important beating ou tho for tuncbi'f the Natioimllbt party. It is obvious that tho expediency of Irish paluots ueiiptlng ofilo under an Kngllsh Prime Miuistoi will iu somo degrco depend upon tho time at which the step Is taken; vhotner, namely, It is taken after or beforo tho pasbitgu of a Homo ltulo bill, it may. Indeed, bo urgued with some show of plaus ibility that irishmen shtmlil bo represented hi a Ministry that uudei takes tho finmlng of ameabuieln which the Interests of Iio land aio vitally coiicoined. Tliou, again, pending tho passage of that measure, why, it may be asked, bliould not tho post of Chief Secretin y Tor Iieland be given to a lepiebcrtiitlve uf the gieat majority of tlio lrih people? Iieland has boon governed for ccntutie-t by alioiis-what harm can It do Iwr to bo governed, during tho few months that tho Dublin Castlo leglmo Is likely to continue, by a native of tho Irish soil l Thin o would be, perhaps, no declbivo objection to biioh a couibe, woio It not for tho suilous split In tho Nationalist party. The ltedniDiidlteu havo elected nt leust bovoii members of Parllauioiit, and in many constituencies which they havo failed to carry thoy coiibtlliuo a largo and ro doubtablo minority. Thoy would umpios tlonnbly bocomo much moro foimld ablo than they uni now, should tho acts of tho McCarthyites lend color to tho charge thai thoy had dopaited from Mr. PAiixEi.tri lino of Independence mid hud sunk Into morccimrics nud camp followers, courting tho favoi'fc and obeying tho orders of tho Liberal chief, It would bo hard to convince a peoplo which has Leon betrayed repeatedly by Its pietended champions that mcii who had accepted places of distinction andouiolumunt would bo eenrchlng, disin terested, and tnibtwoithy critics of u Homo ltulo bill. For nu uullliichliig exposuro of tho dofocts of buc'h n measure. Irishman would bo apt to depend lather on iho Itodmondltes, who would maintain an attitude of Bteiu neutrality, thuu on tho McCarthyites, whoso Judgment might bo warped by oftlclnt fellowship and a commu nity of political Interests with tho devisers of tho homo rulo scheme. It Is peculiarly ti no of Ireland that tho inllucucoof a pa triot is crippled tho moment ho becomes a placeman, and tho McCaithyltes will need every Jot of lullueiicoat their command to persuudo their countrymen to content IhcuihulvL'b for tho present, at all events, with a bill lit which, owing to tho narrow ness of Mr. Oladstonu's majority, thero may have to be coucebslous on both sides, It would lie, therefor", In our Judgment uicmatuio uuJ tulaJlcioas for uuv Mc- .'.,. i .i.i ii 'r. i . Caithyltnlefulor to nccopt otllco iinder Mr. GfjADSTo.VB until a Homo ltulo bill has beon paused. Huehnmcasuro onco carried, tho conditions would bo chaugod, nnd tho prcsoncoof ntlonstono Irish Nationalist In an imperial Ministry would bo appropriate and doslrablo. For whataUiltloh l'arlla ment hns glvon It may also tako away, and thoro will always bo the danger that It may withdraw piecemeal what It has conferred In brock. Tho ndmlsslon of nn Irish Nationalist to tho Llboral Cablnot might bo regarded ns a guarontoo ngatast such torglvorsatlon during, at all events, tho continuance of tho Liberals In power. Moreover, the Natlonollstmombor of a Cab lnot would unquestionably bo consulted about the Irish .ludgos to bo addod to tho Judicial Commlltoe of tho Privy Council, which Is to servo as nCourtof Appoalswhon a cotilllct of jurisdiction nrlses between tho Dublin Legislature and tho Parliament at Westminster. Hesldos. Ireland, nlthough roservlng to herself nn exclusive control of local mntteis, would havo a right to claim her sham In the udmlnlntratlvo. ns woll ns legislative, management of Imperial affairs, until a Home ltulo bill has boon Inscribed upon the statute book. Meanwhile, however, It would bo wlso for Irish National! its to forego tho prollts and honors of oflleo undor tho British Govern ment and lo maintain toward tho Glad Etonians not nu unfriendly but a watihful attitude. Their duty Is to 6ecuro tho largest concessions obtainable under tho existing cireiiiustancos, and to carefully oconomlze their liilluenco for use In n sec ond battle at tho ballot box, which. It Is now clear, cannot bo avoided. France's Fight in Dahomey. Tho King of Dahomey recently sent word to the French that If thoy advanced Into the Interior, or nttnekod any of his towns, ho would seizo Porto Novo and drive tho French luto tho sea. These threats did not prevent the French from occupying Why dah. tho only seaport of tho King, last month, and now Ur.nANzrK Is trying to make good his words. Ho has again In vaded tho Fronoh protoctorato of Porto Novo, and, among tho fresh atrocities of his soldiers, nine whlto missionaries havo been murdered. Six months have elapsod slnco Behasj:in gave provocation for tho war that Franco has declared against him. Tho rainy season was approaching when tho King, In violation of his plodges. invaded Porto Novo nnd car rlod olT sovoral hundred peoplo to bo killed nt the annual sacrlllces. If Franco had beon prepared to Inlllct upon him at onco tho punlshmont ho desorvod, tho wet season would soon havo put an ond to nggresslvo measures. Hut Franco was not roady to tako tho Held; and it probably was fortunate for her that whllo she was raising a special forco In Senegal, building a gunboat adapted for sorvicn In tho coast lagoons and ou tho Whemo lllvor, voting SilWM for exponses. nud getting ready generally to show UcnAN7.rs that sho moant business, the clerk of tho weather was turning Dahomey into a morass and de taining nniiAN'zr.v and his Amazons under 6helter nt tho capital and Godomo. Dahomey will not bo rid of Its superflu ous moisture much boforo August, but Franco is ready to start for tho In terior as soon as marching Is prac ticable. Four thousand soldiers, re cently landed on tho coast, are now In and around Whydah. While Franco's nativo troops aro not a whit bravor thuu thoso of Dahomoy. and cannot match tho Dahomeyans In ferocity, tho weak point in BKHANzni's army is tho Inferiority of its guns; arid, to prevent the King from impottlng arms and ammunition, French war ships nro now maintaining a strict blockade along tho narrow coast lino. Tho Fronoh will not advanco far beforo thoy ronew acquaintance with the Ama zons, whoso prowess In tho war of 13S9-90 won for them tho admiration and respect of their oneralos. Threo thousand of 11e iivnzin's soldiers are now in camp within a day's march of tho French port of Kotonu. It is not likely that tho French will attempt to seize Abomoy. the capital, unless It Is evident that Hehanzi.v cannot bo taught to live up to his treaty obligations, and tho ptotectlou of French Interests nro found to require tho thorough subjugation of tho country. The French Government nnd people havo plainly shown that. If it can bo avoided, thoy do not wish to adopt this ccibtly expodiout. A short and sharp campaign Is probable. Dahomey has no chaneo to win; but tho only woiuon soldiers in tho world will show onco mote that thoy can tight and dlo ns bravely as tho most valorous of men; and so much of the conceit will hi taken out of King P.r.HAN'.r.S' that he. probably, will bo huvo himself for a long time to corao. Mralned. It appears from a speech delivered by tho Hon. Bhvjamin Fiun-km.v Thacy at tho Hon. lIusiiYCiUiWiiivrro.Y Howkv's unnunl Woodstock Wind Party last week, that the butdens of the Pi evidential ofltco aro many and heavy.

Thoilotnhavo driven somo of our Bobor contemporaries ciazy, tho Time having hut Its head apparently through tho notion that tho troops havo beon called to Homo stead " because tho malingers of tho CAlt Nr.oii: Company and thejr workmen cannot agree on a fow disputed points." The State of Ponnsylvnulu has nothing to do with disputes between (Jaiinemr and tho laborers. It has sunt Its troops to Homestead becauso riot and murder woro thoro, with threats of dynamite and de struction beyond tho power of local author ity to put down. "Disputes "might havo gone on till tho mills rotted away, and tho Stnto wouldn't havo been called upon to Interfere. Tho moro serious Is tho subJcct.tho greater tho need for clearness of understanding, nnd absonco of gush on tho part of thoso undortaklng to discuss it. Look Hero! Wo Invito all wago workors, and partic ularly thoso who, when Sonator TAiiMEn mado his extraordinary speech on Homo stead iu the Federal Senato, felt that thoy had found a friend whose support would bo useful and welcome, to look at tho other half of tho Industrial scheme which this socialist Senator proposed.

Thei e wouldn't bo a freo lulioror whero Mich a system prevailed. Thoy would all bo subject personally to tho "correlative rights" ot property owners with whom thoy worked. Tho lash would bo a necessary adjunct of such a system. A rebellious laborer who desired not to work, would havo to bo knoutod as the only moans of making him work against his will.

Tills Is entirely untrue, entirely calumnious, and entirely unnecessary. Mr. Jlr.icE Joes not wish for tha place; Indeed, he has refused It. Ho held it during tho cam palya ot IKtfS aad made tlio bes-t of a very dlfllcult blluatlon.

Ho nmor belonged to tlio I'eoido's party, neer liellnved In Its theories, and de clined (roni the hi that he would never no copt any nomlnntion from It. It was a ploeo of brazen eftrontery In that party to try to force Its nomination upon him. and thero could bo no grnsor Insolnpce than that of the cranks who abuse him for spurning It. Judge GnnsiHM deserves to bo praised for his honorable Inilepondeneo In this Instance. It is worth while nt this tlmo to mention a fact which Is npt to bo lost sight of nowa days, but which nioptot our elderly citizens must ho nware of, and which l'renldont IUnitt son Ib surely famillnrwitli. The fact mny bo brlelly stated in these words: That all the pa trlotlo foldlers who fought the bnttlos of their country in tho wur for the Union. Icj01-'0.r, weie not men of holy llfo and conversation, or. In other words, men of immauulata soul and unconditioned piety. There wuro a good many imperfect mon In our army; thero were also rough characters in It; there wcro oon. let us tell you, President IlAnmnoN, " frequenters of the tavern" In It, plenty of them, notwithstanding your speech at Sarato ga last Tuesday. Tens of thousands of such men thero were In the ranks of the army, men who wero tip-top soldiers, splendid fighters, ond llory patriots, yet who. wo rocret to say, would swoarwhen they got mad, or drink beer.

Is. nnxr apparently tho only clement In the fulled Mutes which holds Itself oboxo und Independent of fair, ovory-day. give-and-take competition, which refuses to yield to the not- ' unil taws nf supply and demand. It Is popularly supposed-and demngoguos encourage this xlew- that tho troublo at the Pennsxlxaiditlron xxoiks Is essentially a con test betxx ecu capital nnd labor. It Is nothing of the kind. It Is Dimply a squaro fight of labor against labor: organized labor agnlnst the unmganlred maps of labor; ot tho high pileed Insnguinnt the cheap outs. Ciipltal Is a mere spectator of this, as of all similar con tests; llko tho rest of this flclllsh worl I. It Is only bhting Its tlmo to tako adx-nntngo of competition, of a glut in tho mnrkota of labor, boforo purchasing. Tho Atnnlgnmnted Association knows that the moment Its guard at tho gates of the Home stead mills Is xvlthuraivn. tho C.trnegto Com pany enn nnd will Instnntly fill their placoa xxlth other laborers, equally competent, xvho stand ready to accept their terms. It Is this class of competing workmen the Homestead rioters nro fighting, nnd not Cor nnglo. They conceal their rettl design by A false appeal against the alleged tyranny of capital, but iiowrtho'ii'ss they seized the mills only to prevent thu othor class of norkmon from getting a job. It U cheap labor and not capital that Is bothering tlio Amalga mated Association. Cnmpctbn nf labor Is whit brought tho Association Into existence. It Is engaged In bullderliirf Itanxvn dontrnd don brethren and not inpltol, iib It xx-ouid havo the xvorld bollLVe. There could bo no possible objection If all the skilled laboroisln tho inuntry xxvro to unite and i-ay: "We xvlll m t engage except on the terms proscribed by the Amalgamated Asso Mution ; xvo xvlll not cum n do xvlth our Homestead biothren." Then thero would be no occasion for a mob's seizing and holding; Illegal possession of Carnegie's mills; there xxould bo hj competition for hs work; he would be compelled to teVmploy his n d h inds or shut down. Hut competing Iniior iIook nit say this; lioncn the spectacle of aa a med at tempt at Its ooercion. Wo cannot dispute tho right of skilled laborers to form .issoel itlom: that is their prixllege. Hut they must not tit tempt to deprive othor citizens of rights ns in nlienablo. Tue Rum (.tales this principle clox'orly nnd strongly. It Is xvcll tho country has ono pnper courageous enough to combat demagoguery. Thereat trouble Is this: There bus been an overproduction of Inhor. mi to s; eiik. Com petition Is tooBhutpto maintain tlm r.tteR. An overproduction of xvhe.it. corn, or i nrk bringi nn lnoxltible decline In tho prices of t'msj products, and the pioducer suites. An over production of cotton affects the planter Llko xx Ise: tho manufacturer also Ins tu lixvorhls prlcoj, and the coniiinor In gono-nlly I ein tltod at their expense. We have known aa overproduction of iron to produce such l.iw prices as to temporarily dooe Loth mines nod mills. Soon through the list. Tho consumer, the purchaser, always takes adx-antage of ox-rpioduction and consequent low prices by common consent. It is the one unquostlonod. universal rulo of trade and commerce. Why should tho laborer bo ex cepted? Should he not bo governed by the same laws of competition as his grower, the farmer, the manufacturer? Is bo Letter than his fellows? If tho Homestead stoel workora. as Is held by many superllelal, shallow demagogue, have amoral right to prex'ont by armed foroo the Carnegto Company from entering tho mar ket of labor for their contingent of hands, why should not tho clerks In the Treasury Department likewise organize ond dotermtno the amount ot their salarios and that no othors shut! bo empioyod? And if it Is merely a ques tion of might then why should they not loot the Treasury to-morrow? The Homestead laborer hns the undeniable right to decline to xx-ork for whomsoever he ploasns. whatsoever tho wages proffered; tho fanner has the similar right to hold his products until thoy rot. at whatever prloo ho may choose to fix upon them; so havo the merchant and manufacturer. Hut tho farmer cannot compel consumers to buy of him nt any prico whatsoever, bo It high or low. Nor can tlio others. How can organized labor ar rogate to itself such a privilego? On what reasonable ground In this domocratlo repub lic, whero all are equal, can It base a claim for a prixilogo not on joyed by other people? Such an assumption la not only against publlo policy, but it Is illegal and a wrong to labor itself. I.esjje J. rERRT. Wasiiinqton, D. C July 13. The True Doctrine anil tho JVevrspas are f CblcMgrn.
